Fridley’s stingy defense has kept opponents out of the endzone in four games
Something’s going to have to give on Friday afternoon in Fridley when the Tigers take on Minneapolis North. Fridley hasn’t given up a touchdown in four games and North averages over 40 points a game on offense.
"We can’t wait to play North. We know they have a great offense and we have a great defense. It’ll be fun to go up against some of the states best players," says Cheick Kaba, Fridley senior Center/Defensive Tackle.

North has quarterback Zach Yeager, who’s a North Carolina A&T commit, he has scored 14 touchdowns in four games, while teammate Terrance Kamara, who’s a Northern Iowa verbal commit, has seven touchdowns of his own. All told the Polars offense is nearly scoring at will.
"We’ve waited a very long time to play in a game like this. We’ve played together since the third grade and I know we have a good team with a lot of balance," says Micah Niewald, Fridley senior Safety/Wide Receiver.
"Our kids have stayed in great shape and they’ve got a lot of discipline. I’m proud of how much work they’ve put in. They’ve trusted the coaching staff and they’ve executed our plan very well. Tomorrow’s game against North will be a fun one to watch," says Justin Reese, Fridley Head Coach.
Minneapolis North is riding a 57-game regular season winning streak. The game is set for 4:00pm Friday at Fridley High School.
